Graffiti cleaning teams
A fast response is required to maintain a graffiti free neighbourhood. Councils and organisations often employ graffiti cleaning service teams that they can call out as and when graffiti is reported. The aim is to remove nasty graffiti within 24 hours and general graffiti within 48 hours which has been shown to be the most effective method of preventing recurrence. In combination with preventative and protective coatings, public penalties and awareness raising, this is the best way of 'keeping a lid' on graffiti in the community.
